Marks and reviews
A Haut-Médoc wine of seductive freshness and complexity
An iconic Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou reigns over a prestigious terroir. In the past 300 years, six families have worked ceaselessly to elevate this estate to the international reputation it enjoys today. A property of the Borie family since 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its terroir of “beautiful pebbles” made up of Gunzian gravel. Under the leadership of Bruno Borie, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou has become one of the greatest red wines of Saint-Julien.
The Château Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard is situated along the river and planted in soils of gravel dating from the Günz Ice Age. Located near the Gironde estuary, the river acts as a thermoregulator. The estates vines give rise to fine Haut-Médoc wines and enjoy an exceptional microclimate.
Vinification and ageing
Following the harvest and a tailor-made vinification process, the wine is aged for 12 months in Bordeaux barrels, 20% in new wood and 80% in second-fill barrels. Ullage is carried out regularly during the first six months of ageing, as well as à l'esquive rackings every two to three months, with four in total.
Cabernet Sauvignon (15%)
Petit Verdot (14%).
